"Love Of My Father", from Zara Carpenter’s new collection.
Here’s Zara story behind the hat:
This headpiece is made on a satin covered headband and sinamay base. It is adorned with a pair of pigeons wings, an adult pigeons head, nestled with a casting of a juvenile pigeon on a bed of fabric violets. The pigeon wing and head is covered in black fine glitter, representing ashes.
My father kept pigeons when I was young, he would send them off on long races and sometimes they won. He adored his pigeons. My father died when I was 15 which broke my heart and changed my life forever. Many people think pigeons are vermin but I love them and I always thought that is we did come back again once we die then maybe he would come back as a pigeon.’

Over the last 8 months I have been working on a sculpture made of flowers, birds wings, insects, snakeskin and berries. This project is still not finished. The headpiece you see in these photographs is a wearable piece of the sculpture. The completed sculpture will be exhibited at The Horsebridge Gallery Whitstable, part of a group exhibition in November.

This is also a sneak peek from the shoot of my couture hat collection.
